I was wondering if anyone had experience with H&R Wheel Spacers. I wanted to keep my stock 17" chrome wheels on my 2000 Millennium Edition but wanted it to have a more aftermarket wheel appearance (fill the wheel well better). I saw on them on the H&R web site http://www.hrsprings.com/site/applications...acersindex.html but wasn't sure exactly if that was something you needed to take it somewhere to have it put on. I also found it on this website: http://www.optauto.com/webstore/product_li...pt=414&last=414

Can anyone tell me if this is something that can be installed easily or do you have to have it professionally installed. Thanks.

Sorry, dunno about the spacers - many use a short set of nuts to bolt onto the existing studs, then have a separate set of studs that you bolt your wheel onto. Smaller (thinner) ones might use standard studs, or special nuts with a longer "reach". IMO \if sold as a "kit" they should be a straight bolt-on.

What I so know is that here in Australia they are definitely NOT legal, and would void warranty, insurance etc (if you got caught)

Hey - that H&R company also have 1.3" lowered spring kits !

yeah, i actually just bought a set of h&r springs, they arrived yesterday. there is a pamphlet in the box about the spacers and i believe they suggest a professional installation (but might just be covering their a$$es). what do the spacers do anyways? i wasn't sure their purpose.

fyi, the springs are supposed to lower 1.4 frt and 1.3 rear.
